The fourteenth President of the United States is honored on a coin due to be released in Spring 2010 from the US Mint. Known as the 2010 Franklin Pierce Presidential $1 Coin, it is the first Presidential Coin of the year, and the fourteenth for the series as a whole.

Franklin Pierce was elected as a dark horse candidate and would become the youngest man to serve as President up to that time. Normally an extremely likable individual, Pierce witnessed the gruesome death of his son just two months before assuming office and his positions and policies seemed to be affected.

Consequently, his Democratic Party abandoned him at re-election time, and Pierce only served one term.
